Skip Tests in Maven [Tip]

If your tests are failing and you can't be bothered to fix them, this handy tip will show you how you can skip tests and build your Maven project straightaway!

Simply add the property -Dmaven.test.skip=true to your Maven command. Here is an example:

mvn -Dmaven.test.skip=true install

The compiler will not compile the test sources and will not run your JUnit tests:

[INFO] [compiler:testCompile]
[INFO] Not compiling test sources
[INFO] [surefire:test]
[INFO] Tests are skipped.

But of course, your test classes should always run, right?
